Diana: Good. We're all here.
Lennox: One too many, No? What's she--
Diana: Couldn't be helped. Can I trust you -- when I'm gone?
So yeah, Zola wasn't meant to be there. Like I said before, I have no idea what Diana planned on doing with Zola to keep her out of the way, and we'll probably never know. And I never said it was a good plan, or if I did then I was wrong and I'll blame having just woken up, it was a piss poor plan. From now on Lennox shouldn't be allowed to do the planning.
And how do we know that Poseidon isn't a god known for having a sense of humour? These aren't the gods from myth, merely inspired by them. Poseidon laughs at the idea of Hera under two kings, makes a joke about Hera's frigid ass and then laughs at what Diana and Lennox did, which is all evidence that he does have a sense of humour.
And if, if - that would be the plot convenience - Zola had done what Diana had told her to do and stayed close then she might not have been kidnapped.
I think Lennox and Diana are both pretty confident that Hera would not agree to marry Poseidon and Hades. And they were right. And I donít think either Poseidon or Hades could force Hera to marry them, at least not without outside influence, e.g. Erosí guns.
I agree the plan is crappy because there are too many variables, but isn't that acknowledged in the next issue? Eros points out what a crappy plan it was. I don't think the plan works just because the plot needs it too; it works because Diana and Lennox managed to pull it off. And itís not as though itís plain sailing: Poseidon refuses to listen to Diana at first; Hera sends the centaurs to attack Zola... Plenty of things went wrong right from the beginning of the plan.
